Who Am I?

I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed. The dye has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I won't look back, let up, slow down or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals. I no longer need preeminence, positions, promotions, plaudits or popularity, I don't have to be right, first, recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on my presence, walk with patience, I am uplifted by prayer, and labor with power. My face is set, my gait is fast and my goal is heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided or delayed. I will not flinched in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, phone at the pool of popularity, and meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won't give up, shut up, or let up until I have stayed up, stored up, and paid up for the cause of Christ. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, and work till He stops me. And when He returns to His own, He will have no problem recognizing me. my banner will be clear. That is who I am.
